EFTP Non-Residential Program

EFTP Non-Residential Program

The Entering Freshman Transition Program (EFTP) is a non-residential component of the college of engineering summer-bridge program. First year students who do not participate in the STEPUP summer program may apply for EFTP which takes place during the Fall/Spring semester of each year.

While all engineering students will have access to top-notched centralized advising through our Engineering Advising Center, participation in the non-residential program can provide additional benefits that include (but are not limited to):

  • An additional academic and social support system throughout the freshman year in the college and entire undergraduate experience.
  • An opportunity to participate in STEPUP academic, personal and professional development activities during the fall/spring semester.
  • An invitation to participate in corporate tours during the Fall/Spring semester (based on space availability).
  • An invitation to attend faculty/corporate networking and social events planned exclusively for STEPUP participants during the fall & spring semester (based on space availability).
  • An opportunity to develop and become part of a positive, larger cohort of peer engineering students.

EFTP Non-Residential Program Requirements

 First-year students interested in participating in the EFTP non-residential program will be required to submit a $50.00 application fee for the year (Due to limited capacity, acceptance into the program will be grated on a first come, first served basis).

EFTP participants will be expected to meet all requirements listed below to retain their active participation status and privileges in the program.

EFTP participants must:

  • Register and complete a 1 credit hour course during the Fall semester as described below:

–   EFTP Program – EGN 1935 – Professional Development (1Cr)

  • Attend at least 2 academic, personal or professional development activities each semester (Fall & Spring). Students will be provided a list of activities which count towards this requirement each semester.
  • Attend all group and/or individual meetings with professional academic advisors, coaches, and/or assigned student mentors as scheduled (Typically, no more than 2-4 meetings per semester in total).
  • Agree to have their academic performance monitored by the STAR office throughout the entire freshman year.
